Doe anybody know of any still working individual wells within the city of Chicago that might have been part of a small homestead?
Or any individual wells at all? Even in close in burbs?
Every so often I drive past an old farm house and I see the remains of the old hand pump well, but not any that I can recall in the city. As a kid I used to see a lot more.
What brought this to mind was finding a still working hand pump well at the Forest Preserve off of Willow Springs Road. Most of the FP wells have been capped, at least in the south FP region that I am familiar.
Any working wells still left out there?
